On September 5th, 2023, Ghanaian musician, Epixode, demonstrated his unwavering commitment to education by generously donating essential learning materials, toiletries, and assorted beverages to the community of Aboetia, situated near Juapong in the Volta region.
Epixode’s donation serves as a dedicated effort to bolster education within rural areas, with a particular focus on Aboetia. The community faces numerous challenges, including the absence of adequate classroom infrastructure for the Junior High School stream and a scarcity of qualified teachers, all compounded by the harsh living conditions of the area.
During the donation event, Epixode personally presented a variety of educational supplies, including exercise books, pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, as well as clothing and personal hygiene items. The items were handed over to the community through the esteemed His Royal Highness, Togbe Korku Mensah, the Chief of Aboetia.
In addition to the material contributions, Epixode took the opportunity to inspire and motivate the pupils, emphasizing the importance of embracing classroom education and steering clear of activities that may hinder their long-term success.
This philanthropic initiative was made possible through a collaborative effort between Epixode’s ‘Make Them Smile’ initiative, JPah, and the Schools Support Project. Together, they aim to bring smiles and hope to the children of Aboetia while striving to improve the educational landscape in the region.
